A touch of gold

So thinking about the Toronto box I got, and given the number of cards, I think I have an idea for it. Given it was such a gift at the price, I think I am going to save it and spend the month of December going through it. I know, that means putting it off a couple months, but with December being the time of giving and the holidays, why not make it a month of Toronto sports appropriate a time as any I'd say. Anyway, that is where I am leaning on that one, but I reserve the right to change my mind (repeatedly).

Unfortunately one of those days that comes up every now and then in the Santa Lot - not much for my collection. Then again, I guess that does mean, there might be something here for you.


Slim pickings overall for my personal wants, so I'll go with the only decent insert in the 20 cards.

The rest

Yeah - just the one, and a Canadien at that.


The Pro Set card is the French version - given the lack of O Pee Chee baseball (and even to some extent hockey) I am a bit surprised that there have been a number of French Pro Set cards. Otherwise a couple regular sets we see with dupes from 2007-08 SP Authentic and 2007-08 Upper Deck.
